Is the Leica 35mm Summilux-M ASPH f/1.4 lens good for landscapes?
This is one of my two, go-to lenses when I shoot landscape photography. It offers amazing edge to edge clarity and micro contrast that’s second to none. Having the option to shoot wide open at f/1.4 also gives you the creative landscape option of adding some fantastic bokeh to some scenes
Yes, it is an expensive lens to invest in but from my perspective, it’s a one-off purchase that will last me a lifetime. Therefore the answer is a big YES, but only if the 35mm angle fits with your style of landscape photography. If I want to show a wider perspective, the second of my go-to lenses is the Leica 21mm Super-Elmar-M ASPH f/3.4 which I will detail in a later blog.
